Packing for the move can be one of the biggest hassles. Make sure you get organised as early as possible: clear out an unwanted items that you didn’t already get rid of before putting your house on the market, and get quotes from movers. You can decide whether you want the movers to simply move furniture and shift boxes that you have already packed, or if you want them to do some or all of the packing.
If you are packing the boxes yourself, start the process as early as possible, and keep a “unpack first” with essentials like toiletries and medications, which will be packed at the last moment. Also be mindful of not over-packing boxes or making them too heavy to lift and carry. Be sure to label all the boxes clearly on all sides with the room they should go into in the new house.
